CFB Note - Memphis Ferguson, Riley

Oct 20, 2017 - 9:09 AM Riley Ferguson hit Sean Dykes with a 21-yard touchdown pass with 1:28 to play to lift No. 25 Memphis to a come-from-behind 42-38 win over Houston on Thursday at TCECU Stadium in a dynamite American Athletic Conference showdown. The Tigers (6-1, 3-1 AAC) trailed 17-0 at halftime and scored touchdowns on all five of their possessions in the second half and added a kickoff return for another score. Memphis' victory allowed it to clinch bowl eligibility for a fourth consecutive season. The Tigers have never played in bowl games in four straight years. Ferguson completed 33 of his 53 passes for 471 yards and an interception to go with his game-winning hookup to Dykes. Anthony Miller caught 10 of those throws for 178 yards. Houston outgained the Tigers 554-501 and outrushed Memphis 239-30 but two late turnovers after the Tigers' final score ultimately doomed the Cougars, who lost their second straight game. The loss snapped a six-game win streak for Houston (4-3, 2-2) against top-25 teams, which was the nation's second longest active streak against ranked opponents. Kyle Postma led Houston with 315 yards passing but fumbled and threw an interception in the final 1:28 of the contest. - The Sports Xchange
